With this lineup, you know the track’s gonna be dope even before you hit the play button. Big Joe, Bam Bam, and Premo are a dream trio; let’s hope this is the first of more collabs between all of them.

As a general rule, anytime you can sample a man whose outfits were so crazy they made Rick James look like Mr. Rogers, and just so happened to be one of the best funk bassist of all-time, you’re doing something right. With a source like Bootsy Collins‘ “Munchies For Your Love” most amateur producers would be tempted to really go wild, but often less is more, and J. Cole‘s loop of the guitar line and subtle percussion on “Crunch Time” are a study in how to do it. But he’s far from the only one to touch “Munchies.” That said, hit the jump and let’s see what other producers throughout Hip-Hop history have dabbled with this sample and how those renditions hold up to the born sinner’s effort.

After uniting with Drake, 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar on his new solo smash, “Fuckin’ Problems,” A$AP Rocky finds himself on another hip-hop dream team. It’s Fat Joe’s new single, “Yellow Tape,” which recruits the Harlem star, alongside familiar faces Lil Wayne and French Montana. In all honesty, this combination hardly touches “Fuckin’ Problems,” but at least it’s better than Joey Crack’s last output, “Instagram That Hoe” (seriously, which yes man told him that was a good title?!)

Gang Starr

Having released a nine-minute album sampler last month, Boston-bred emcee and founding member of Gang Starr Big Shug liberates the CDQ of perhaps the most appetising item on his I.M. 4-EVA tracklist with “Hardbody”, featuring two of New York’s toughest names in Fat Joe and the M.O.P. collective. With the mighty DJ Premier behind the boards, dusty piano loops, clunking drums and striking nostalgia seep through your speakers the moment you press play. Dropping July 24th, Shug’s I.M. 4-EVA will also feature contributions from Termanology, Reks and Lee Bannon.


STREAM: Big Shug (feat. Fat Joe & M.O.P.) – “Hardbody” (prod. by DJ Premier)

Greg Grease – “Forward”



If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break.

Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage.
